There is a lot of focus on Soil conservation in Jammu and Kashmir as the administration is busy providing the technical knowledge to the farmers on this issue.
Recently LG Manoj Sinha in a farmer’s convention said that Soil conservation is a global priority now. For better management of agricultural production, investing deeply in soil health, prevention of biodiversity loss is necessary for sustainable growth.
He underscored that Individual Farmer incomes have grown solidly over the last two years and the pace of reform has quickened recently followed by recommendations of Apex Committee on holistic development of Agriculture & allied sectors.
Structural and attitudinal changes are reflected in productivity performance, adaption of new technologies, expansion of public extension services and strengthening of infrastructure and operations.
We have huge potential for processing, comparative advantage in several Agri-commodities and scope for mobilizing farmers through FPOs and SHGs to monetize produce, secure livelihood and standard of living for farmers and workers.
